  • How is property considered public, when the occupation asked to waive rights to dig around.

    Seems occupation brought it public….

    Weird, cops hate constitution and america while defending federal reserve, but story sounds one for supreme court.

    Cops seem to hate america and protect banking cartels and unions at the expense of little people.

    Love to hear a cop’s impression of the federal reserve, if one had the guts to speak it.

    Where’s cap?

  • Why would she admit to anything unless threatened? Seems very odd to me. What is “suspicious” about being at the post office in the afternoon?
